SuSE 9.3 discs found

Oh yeah, forgot to mention this morning....that I found where the SuSE 9.3 DVD had gone to. Now that I don't need it. :## Just as well, since I might have a different use for the extra DVD-ROM drive I have laying about.

I'm thinking that if I ever do get around to moving the DVD burner into my desktop, that I'll want that extra DVD-ROM drive to be mounted externally for reader use on there. I know I could use the displaced DVD-ROM drive from the desktop, but the extra drive is the cooler slot-loading type. Of course, I do have my old DVD burner.... Well, we'll see what I do when I do get around to it.... :**:

Meanwhile...in preparation for upgrading my home server to 7.3, it occurred to me that I could at least attempt to make a set of mondorescue discs for it. I grabbed the latest stable snapshot of mindi/mondo and tried to do this. But, try as I might...it kept failing. Then I reverted to the stable release rather than the CVS snap, and that seems to be working.

It won't save the 3 data filesystems on the box, one of which resides on the system disk. But, the upgrade shouldn't affect these if something does go wrong. But, the upgrade of the NIS master at work, also went pretty smoothly.

Though my home server is quite different than the NIS master/slave servers. Those are just minimal servers. While my home box has the whole world on it, and runs it too.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
